Posted 18 August 2015

If my contribution towards medical aid is R1000, deducted from my salary, and the company pays the other R1000 (50/50) is the code 3810 then supposed to be R24,000?

My understanding is that code 4005 plus 4474 equals code 3810 or have I got it completely wrong?

SARS says submit my 2011/2012 tax returns but I wasnt employed nor did I have tax number

Posted 11 August 2015

I emailed SARS to enquire why my 2015/2015 tax returns have not been paid to me yet and they replied saying my 2011/2012 tax returns were not submitted so until they receive that then they will be able to pay me.

Delayed refund from SARS?

Posted 9 August 2015

Hi there,

I submitted my tax rerun for this year and SARS have requested returns for 2011 and 2012. Since they didn't ask for these last year, am I correct in assuming that I didn't need to submit them in the past and will therefor not be penalized?

Also, my 2012 return has been selected for verification. Im assuming this is a random selection or perhaps because the three returns together equate to a refund due to me of around R12 000. I cant see any other reason fo...
